(CNN)This week is about to get a whole lot sexier.

With the hotly anticipated release of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film on Friday, there has been plenty of discussion about whether the movie will measure up to the very successful novels. The sex scenes are said to be beyond steamy.
There's also lots of fun being had, from "Fifty Shades"-related merchandise (giving new meaning to the term "movie tie-in," given the story's themes of sadomasochism and bondage) to a version of the trailer using only Legos.
    Nothing is sacred when it comes to parodies. There is even a "Fifty Shades of Frozen." Yes, you read that correctly.
    "Fifty Shades of Grey" stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. According to MTV, two sequels are already in the works.
